In response to the letter: Is the Echo showing racist tendencies?
How irritating to see how language can trigger people to ridiculous levels of whining and whingeing.
FYI, ‘whitesplaining’ is not a word and, if it was, this may be racist.
Seems fashionable to denigrate, blame and boo white men. Censorship and PC-speak is a simple equation to strangulate critical thinking and freedom of expression.
The irony is, the so-called offending letter was misinterpreted and not read for its historical context.
May Byron Shire remain a place where freedom of expression is valued! Nuf sed.
